Attorney General Eric Holder can´t

Obama´s executive orders

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

WASHINGTON — Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says House conservatives are preparing to sue President Barack Obama for executive overreach in response to his threats of unilateral action on a host of issues. “He’s the president of the United States — he’s not a king,” the Republican lawmaker told reporters after Obama’s State of the Union address. “He may think he’s a king, he may declare himself king, but that’s not what he is under our Constitution.” Bachmann said an effort is underway in Congress to take back their “authority under the Constitution as the House of Representatives.” She said the

Mark Levin says he thought long and hard about what the House of Representatives can do, given that they won’t use the power of the purse to reign in this president, and has come up with a solution. He says they should pass a resolution declaring null and void all presidential acts that are unconstitutional. Hey lays it out below: There’s something the House of Representatives actually can do. …Congress is a co-equal branch of the federal government and the House of Representatives is a co-equal branch of the United States Senate.

A leading gay rights group lashed out at President Obama´s State of the Union address because he again failed to fulfill a six-year-old promise to sign an executive order outlawing sexual discrimination against gays and lesbians by federal contractors. “As CEO of the largest workforce in the country -- the federal government -- it is incumbent upon President Obama to ensure that all Americans are able to benefit from his executive action; the refusal to do so would mean that the president is actively choosing to permit discrimination against LGBT workers,” said Heather Cronk, co-director of GetEQUAL, an activist group

In reference to President Barack Obama’s pledge, during his State of the Union speech, to advance his agenda on climate change and the minimum wage by executive order, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said “executive orders are legal” and that he is “acting on behalf of the American people.” At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening, CNSNews.com asked Rep. Lee, “What about the Republicans criticizing the use of executive orders when it comes to climate change and minimum wage – his use of executive orders?” Rep. Jackson Lee said, “As I was saying, [the address] was appealing to the needs

Despite criticism of President Barack Obama’s pledge that he will use his executive authority and executive orders to advance his agenda regardless of Congress, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said the president “should use his executive authority.” At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday following the president’s State of the Union speech, CNSNews.com asked Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz, “What do you think of the criticism about using executive order(s) to get things done on climate change or [the] minimum wage?” “Well, the ball’s in their court,” she said, in reference to Republicans in the House of Representatives. “I mean, they have an opportunity

A “diminished leader.” “A study in scaled-down ambition.” “None too ambitious.” These are some of the reactions to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night from prominent media outlets like the New York Times, POLITICO, and the National Journal. It’s not that agenda items the president articulated last night are so modest themselves, it’s simply that articulating the same agenda two years in a row with little to show in the way of progress is dispiriting. What seemed like an ambitious agenda in 2013 appears “scaled down” in light of the fact that much of it was never

NY1 Washington reporter Michael Scotto spoke to Morning Joe about his altercation with Representative Michael Grimm (R-NY) after last night’s State of the Union, in which Grimm reacted angrily to Scotto’s question about corruption allegations and threatened to throw the reporter off the rotunda balcony (he phrased a bit differently). “I’m used to people giving me pushback for questions, but I was not used to something like that,” Scotto said, adding that Grimm was “angrier than I have ever seen a politician talk to a reporter about a question that he or she didn’t like.” Scotto said NY1 had been trying to

Mitt Romney praised New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Tuesday for his “strong LBJ-type leadership style.” In an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network, Romney confirmed an earlier report that Christie wanted Romney’s 2012 campaign team to clear with him who Romney would raise money with in New Jersey. Cavuto asked Romney if that depicted Christie as a bully—a criticism he’s faced in recent weeks as details of the bridge and Sandy recovery funding scandals unfold--but Romney spun it as a positive trait. “No, I consider it to be a strong LBJ-type leadership style,” Romney replied. “I

Vice President Joe Biden had another lovable gaffe Wednesday morning, confusing his cabinet-mate of three years Robert Gates with the mega-billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. When asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie about Gates’ recent criticisms of the Vice President, Joe responded, “Look, I like Bill Gates…I think he’s a man of great integrity as well. The fundamental problem here is Bill Gates and I have – Bob Gates – have disagreed on everything since Vietnam.” Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense from 2006-2011, wrote in his recently released book, Duty, that Biden has been wrong on “every foreign policy issue

President Obama has been losing his TV audience — literally. With the State of the Union proving ever less entrancing for viewers, the White House is desperate to turn the speech into a multiday event in an effort to bolster interest in Mr. Obama’s policies, even if people don’t tune in to hear his words. With online question-and-answer sessions, a “virtual road trip” scheduled for Friday and a presidential video, the White House is determined to spread Mr. Obama’s message beyond Tuesday night’s hourlong address. “Literally, the conversation never ends,” said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell recalled on Monday some of the most impactful State of the Union addresses in the recent past, focusing primarily on George W. Bush’s post-9/11 speech in which he called North Korea, Iraq, and Iran members of an “Axis of Evil.” Mitchell ripped into Bush and former Secretary of State Colin Powell for approving that remark which alienated Iran, a country she said had been “more or less an American ally.” Washington Post reporter Chris Cillizza said that the “Axis of Evil” address was among the most important State of the Union addresses delivered in recent memory. “That

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to sign an executive order requiring that janitors, construction workers and others working for federal contractors be paid at least $10.10 an hour, using his own power to enact a more limited version of a policy that he has yet to push through Congress. The order, which Mr. Obama will highlight in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night, is meant to underscore an increasing willingness by the president to bypass Congress if lawmakers continue to resist his agenda, aides said. After a year in which most of his legislative priorities went nowhere,

Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the president´s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat. On Monday, Mr. Obama acted unilaterally to raise the minimum wage paid by federal contracts, the first of many executive actions the White House promised would be a theme of his State of the Union address Tuesday night. The president´s taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology. The great 18th-century political philosopher Montesquieu observed: "There can

Senate Republicans Develop The Most Credible

“Repealing and replacing” Obamacare with market-oriented reforms has been the Republican mantra for years now. If you’re a long-time follower of this space, you know that we’re skeptical that Obamacare will ever be repealed, GOP slogans to the contrary. Today, however, a trio of experienced Senate Republicans—Tom Coburn (Okla.), Richard Burr (N.C.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah)—have put forth the most thoughtful and constructive plan yet developed to repeal and replace Obamacare. The plan seeks to ensure that as many Americans have health coverage as Obamacare does. It’s a proposal grounded in the real-world tradeoffs that all serious reformers must make.

President Barack Obama delivered a State of the Union Address on Tuesday that was important less for what he said than for what it says about him. The speech was long, more than an hour. At times it was defiant, at others it felt almost conciliatory. But mostly the speech was forgettable, disposable – a long list of modest policy proposals that will not be remembered for much longer than their echo in the House chamber. On domestic policy, we knew what to expect. The stars of last year’s speech – immigration and gun control – were mere afterthoughts this year,

Former Vice President Al Gore raised eyebrows last week when he suggested that “fertility management” was the key to fighting global warming and promoting economic development in poor countries. Gore’s comments drew criticism from free-marketeers who said his remarks amount to “eco-imperialism.” “Gore’s agenda for saving the world from global warming has always included population control,” Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Advocating population control specifically for Africa is just another form of imperialism. Gore’s eco-imperialism is uncomfortably close to the original racist goals of

A year after saying it didn’t matter what sparked the vicious attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling the incident the “biggest regret” of her stint as secretary of state.“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton told an auto dealers conference in New Orleans on Monday. Clinton didn’t acknowledge any particular blunder in the days or weeks leading up to the 2012 siege that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. Critics blame unmet security requests by the tragic US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack. Clinton

It´s a good thing I remembered where I stored all my old ski gear, including the thermal underwear that I hadn´t worn in years. I´ve needed it during a season in which even the Deep South has seen an epidemic of frozen pipes, single-digit temperatures and school cancellations without snow. School kids were allowed to stay home for a day or two because, according to administrators, the weather was too doggone cold. The deep freeze might have forced most of us into a shoulder-hunching slouch, but it prompted an Easter Parade-like promenade by a crew of familiar climate change skeptics

It started out like dozens of other interviews after Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. But when NY1 reporter Mike Scotto decided to press Rep. Michael Grimm on his personal campaign finances, the Republican congressman abruptly ended the interview. “This is only about the president’s speech, thank you,” Grimm says before walking off camera. It’s certainly not the first time a politician has walked out during a live interview. But what happened next is shocking even to the most jaded observer. After Stotto returns to his report, Rep.

On Tuesday evening, Fox contributor Erick Erickson responded to Greta Van Susteren‘s blog post calling him a “jerk” with a blog post of his own. In a RedState post, Erickson gave thanks to Van Susteren for turning the country’s attention to “abortion lover” and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, by way of attacking him. Van Susteren was incensed by several of Erickson’s tweets referring to Davis as “Abortion Barbie” and using condescending language towards the female lawmaker. “I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with Texas’ Wendy Davis, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is a real
